    Vatican rejects Israeli complaint

    Vatican rejects Israeli complaint

    The Vatican has rejected Israel's criticism that Pope Benedict XVI failed to condemn Palestinian militant attacks against Israel in his recent remarks.
    A Vatican statement said it could not condemn every Palestinian strike because Israel's own response had sometimes violated international law.

    Israel had complained that the Pope on Sunday left the country off a list of those recently hit by terror attacks.

    The Pope deplored the attacks in Egypt, Turkey, Iraq and Britain.

    Stern statement
    The latest statement from the Vatican said: "It's not always possible to immediately follow every attack against Israel with a public statement of condemnation."

    It said this was mainly because "the attacks against Israel sometimes were followed by immediate Israel reactions not always compatible with the rules of international law".
    "It would thus be impossible to condemn the first (Palestinian attacks) and let the second (Israeli retaliation) pass in silence".

    The statement added that "the Holy See cannot take lessons or instructions from any other authority on the tone and content of its statements".

    Earlier this week, it criticised the Pope for failing to mention a 12 July suicide bombing in Netanya that killed five Israelis.

    The foreign ministry said the pontiff's speech would be interpreted as "granting legitimacy to... terrorist attacks against Jews".

    This make feel sad about the Arabic situation , the Vatican took a courage decision yet some Arab leaders are watching the Palestinian die on a daily basis and you see them running and crawling to condemn the Palestinian attacks only and kiss ass "Israel".

    Zoaib,

    This is NOT a good post and here's why:

    From:
    http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7...121056,00.html
    "Some 33 Israelis were murdered and 286 were injured in terror attacks over the past seven months, while mortar shell fire on Israel has increased by 50 percent in July, a Shin Bet report published Monday says.

    Furthermore, the 436 terror attacks recorded in July broke the "all-time record" of October 2004, where the number of terror attcks reached 426."


    It's very nice of the pope to talk about TWO terrorist attacks in London, and maybe ONE terrorist attack in Egypt, but to neglect mentioning the 436 terror attacks that took place in Israel in one month...

    Now, let's look carefully at this article:

    The Vatican has rejected Israel's criticism that Pope Benedict XVI failed to condemn Palestinian militant attacks against Israel in his recent remarks.

    Why does the BBC think that when mortar bombs are fired at Israeli civilians it's "militant attacks" but when train stations get blown up in London it's "terror attacks"?


    A Vatican statement said it could not condemn every Palestinian strike because Israel's own response had sometimes violated international law.

    1. And shooting the man at the London train station was lawful?

    2. Israel didn't ask for a condemnation "every time". It complained:
    "Israel had complained that the Pope on Sunday left the country off a list of those recently hit by terror attacks."


    The Pope deplored the attacks in Egypt, Turkey, Iraq and Britain.

    Add the number of all of the attacks on all of the countries above, multiply by two, and you probably won't get half the number of attacks carried out against Israel in the last month....But still, the Vatican doesn't think Israelis deserve to be mentioned when it comes to condemning the murder of innocent people by terrorism.
